Poured from 12 oz bottle into large tulip. A beautiful clear deep mohagany with a thin white head. Aroma is of dates, caramel, brown sugar...all malt, no discernable hop presence. Taste follows the nose with malty sweetness and dried fruit...dried plums, caramel, raisins, a little bit of bread. Mouthfeel is nice, a little thin, low carbonation. Overall, an excellent example of doppelbock. Well done.

Maybe I have had this one too long. Although I hear you can put some age on it. I will be short with this review. It was poured out halfway through drinking so that I could get to something else. I found it to cloying. It was not balanced enough to make it an enjoyable experience. I may try another in a different setting but I believe that it was too malty and sweet for my taste.
